Sergio Aguero has confirmed that will return to Argentina to finish out his career when his contract at City ends
The 27-year-old still has three years remaining on his current deal and there had been suggestions City were on the verge of getting the Argentina international to commit the rest of his future to the club.
However, Aguero has refuted those suggestions and insists he will return to his boyhood club Independiente when his contract expires a year after the 2018 World Cup.
“In the last few months a lot of things have been said about a new contract, but I didn’t pay any attention.
“It’s clear to me that when my contract ends, after the World Cup, I’m going to Independiente.”
“Here at the club they are great with me, they always told me that they were open if the chance of a transfer arises. But where I am going to go in Europe?
“No, when I go, when my contract ends, I’m going to Argentina to play for El Rojo. From Manchester, straight to Avellaneda.”
Since joining City from Atletico Madrid in 2011, Aguero has scored at least 16 more goals than any other player in the Premier League, with his brace against Aston Villa at the weekend taking him to within six of reaching 100 Premier League goals (94).
This is a big blow to City as Aguero will still be one of the best strikers in the world in three years. To not be able to sign him to a new deal, and have him leave on a Bosman is a double blow for City.
